All done healing.
I am so grateful not to be in constant pain, or any pain. I have more energy. I don't spend my time emotionally accepting what I cannot do because of the pain. I can wear pants.
Pain is so tiring and demoralizing.
I do have some sensitivity to excessive friction on my inner labia. I don't feel high pressure to address this, but I will. I think creams or hormones will help.
My marriage did break up. It is common for this to occur, although I think it usually happens more rapidly. It took us 21-years of dealing with my constant sexual pain. Fixing the biological problem did not mitigate the associated emotional trauma in our sex life. We both have so much PTSD around sex because of our shared history. We broke up about seven months after the surgery.
